How's it taste?

Strong luminous gold in colour, with aromas of marmalade and notes of apricot. Ample, fruity and fresh on the palate, with good acidity, a touch of honey and a long, fragrant finish.

How was it made?

The harvest is entirely handpicked. Gentle extraction is achieved through low pressure pressing and winemaking at a controlled temperature. The wine is matured on fine lees for a period of 4 months, and then filtered. It is stocked in stainless steel vats for several months before being bottled.

Who made it?

Dopff & Irion was created in 1945, so just after the Second World War, by the merger of two wine families: the Dopff family and the Irion family. René Dopff was the son of Jean Gustave Dopff, winemaker in Riquewihr and whose family produces wines since the 16th century. He took care of the management and administration and his brother Julien worked mainly in the vineyards. Following a dispute between the two brothers, René left the winery and joined the Resistance. On his return to Riquewihr in March 45, René goes into partnership with Jeanne Irion, a major family name in the Alsatian vineyard, to create the company Dopff & Irion. After the merger, they joined their vineyards to form the 27 hectares that surround the village and they rebuild them. René Dopff wasthe pioneer to implement the grape variety according to the terroir. This method will allow to highlight the grape variety and the characteristic of the soil. Dopff & Irion wines were served at the Elysée Palace but also at Buckingham Palace. The reputation was at the time well established. Before the death of René, his son, Guy continued the management of the estate but he put the winery on sale for economic reasons in 1983. The Cave des Vignerons de Pfaffenheim, a prestigious cooperative and recognized by many international competitions, bought the Dopff & Irion winery in 1997 to perpetuate this beautiful heritage.
